The Benefits of Estate Planning If You Have Children
Did you know that estate planning is just as crucial for your children as it is for you? If you have minor children, or if you have children with special needs, estate planning is a meaningful way you can protect their future. Regardless of your level of wealth, you can benefit from speaking with an estate planning lawyer about your current assets and how you want your children cared for if you are suddenly incapacitated or die unexpectedly.
Establishing a plan for your children can take many forms, including:
- Establishing a trust fund
- Appointing a guardian or conservator
- Identifying more than one guardian, or specific guardians for specific children
- Developing a care plan for children with special needs
If you have a child with a disability or other special needs that require care after they have reached adulthood, estate planning is especially important. If you were to pass away unexpectedly without an estate plan, the courts will determine guardianship of your child. It is worth noting that the person the court select is not necessarily the person you would select, and therefore, having an estate plan in place that identifies who you have named as guardian can go a long way in ensuring your child’s quality of life and security.
